Sea Level Junk Science In California

April 20, 2012

In the 20th century, the sea level rose on average 8 inches along California’s coastline, research by Climate Central and others shows.

Middle-of-the-road expectations are that it will rise 6 to 8 more inches by 2030, 12 inches by 2050 and 24 inches by 2070.

By 2100, it could be 3 to 5 feet higher, said Gary Griggs, director of the Institute of Marine Sciences at UC Santa Cruz.

Complete bollocks. UC Santa Cruz was famous in the 1970s for being the dope smoking capital of America. Nothing has changed. There has been no rise in sea level near Santa Cruz for over 30 years.

    Nevermind… I was still going to the other site. I figured you were on vacation or something. I didn’t see the explaination of the highjacking of rea-science until I scrolled down through the older posts here.

    Wouldn’t a busy seaport in Southern California be concerned about that alarming sea-level rise? Here’s Port of LA’s website:

    http://www.sanpedro.com/ And it has a nice picture of Battleship Iowa offering up a broadside.

    And they do have a “Local Environment” page so I checked it out to see if there is mention of that alarming sea-level rise…And here’s what they say about the “Local Environment”:

    San Pedro, California is the Gateway to the world! Located just south of Los Angeles, it is one of the busiest ports on the Pacific Ocean. With its location at the edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, San Pedro has majestic cliffs and bluffs with ocean vistas that are unmatched anywhere in the world. It has an international culture and a history dating back to 1542.

    A temperate climate and balmy ocean breezes allow visitors and residents to enjoy this area’s many attractions and recreational activities year round.

    They don’t seem too concerned.

    • Why would a tourism website alarm people about rising sea levels?

      • I would think it devastatingly necessary to warn potential visitors about 75m of sea-level rise that’s just waiting in the “pipeline” to drown everyone. It would be utterly irresponsible to do otherwise.

        • I agree visitors need to be warned, but I don’t know that it is the responsibility of websites designed to attract tourists. My favorite destinations are often the victims of severe weather, yet the tourist websites tell what the location has to offer. That is the purpose of these sites.

        • I suppose this is a non-issue regardless, since the information is not accurate. :)

        Come stay at our beautiful city and you might be lucky enough to experience the Tsunami of the millennium. Make your reservations now because there is 75 meters of water in the pipeline just waiting for your visit. The chance for a once in a lifetime experience.

    @jimash1
    Many thanks for a really nice video heads-up. I’ll be using that for some wannabe warmista friends.
